  That’s no effing moon… 

In terms of video game adaptions, the Star Wars franchise has done much better than a lot of others. Super Star Wars and such have been spoiling us with not shit-your-pants-amazing-but-competent-and-solid quality titles for decades. My favorite of all? The GameCube launch game, Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader.

Why this one in particular? All kinds of reasons. It looked damn sexy back in 2001, that’s for sure. These were some amazing graphics right here, and it still holds up quite well. That, coupled with the fact that the first mission was the huge, sweeping assault on the Death Star at the end of the first movie, totally sold it to me.

The latest high-profile series release is Star Wars Battlefront. There’s nothing especially wrong with it, per se, it’s just been lacking something. Its own big-ass Death Star-destroying moment of badassery, perhaps.

Well, I’ve got some good news on that score. Battlefront’s latest DLC has arrived, imaginatively named Death Star so that nobody has any darn doubt what the highlight is here. Season pass owners can get their hands on it right now, Game Spot reports, while the rest of us will be able to download the content in two weeks.

As well as the spangly new Battle Station mode, there are 5 additional maps included, as well as two new characters in Bossk and hairy-assed fan favorite Chewbacca. There are also smaller changes behind the scenes, like character balancing and bug fixing. Hit the link for the full skinny.
